How are you guys? It's been a while, but I've been busy. So busy, I finished the project at the end of July and I'm just posting it. I know, I know.
But without any more delay...
I picked up this pattern at JoAnn's. I saw the dress and thought it was a really nice silhouette. I didn't have a fabric in mind but I really like the pattern. About a month later, I was in Hancock checking out the $3.95 table (yes, I love that table). I found this cute turquoise and black stretch knit. I got home and the 2 became 1.
While cutting I realized I didn't have enough fabric to make the bottom long enough. Now, trust me I could have rocked the mini but that wasn't the look I was going for. I was trying for work, church, or weekend versatile. I decided to go ahead with what I had and find some black knit to finish it. I did just that.
It turned out better than expected. The pattern was easy too. I'll be making a few more of these.
So, here is Mannequesha wearing my version of McCall's M6752.
